Lend Me A Tenor to close early at the Gielgud
Lend Me A Tenor, the musical comedy by Peter Sham and Brad Carroll, is to close early at the Gielgud Theatre in London. [caption id="" align="alignright" width="240" caption="Matthew Kelly in Lend Me A Tenor"][/caption] Based on Ken Ludwig’s award-winning play, the show opened on 15 June but has failed to find an audience and will now close on Saturday 6 August 2011. The producers, Martin Platt and David Elliott, said in a statement that, "Despite mostly wonderful notices from the press, great feedback from our audiences and nightly standing ovations, this has not translated into growing sales and we feel it is in everyone's best interests to close the production on August 6th.” The show stars Matthew Kelly, last seen in the West End in the short-lived production of Sign of the Times at the Duchess Theatre, and Joanna Riding, who previously starred in The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, also at the Gielgud, and which also closed early. Other cast include Damian Humbley, Michael Matus, Sophie-Louise Dann and Cassidy Janson, with direction by Ian Talbot. Critics largely enjoyed the show, with Michael Coveney in the Independent saying that, "“Sure, the whole shebang’s a bit of a throwback, but it’s fun and finished to a very high standard", but others, including Nick Curtis in the Standard, found that there was, "a disjunction here between retrogressive comedy and modern musical sentiment, and the result is blandness." The next confirmed production at the Gielgud is not until November, with a stage adaptation of movie classic The Ladykillers.

Production photos of Lend Me A Tenor at the Gielgud Theatre starring Matthew Kelly and Joanna Riding
Matthew Kelly and Joanna Riding star in Lend Me A Tenor at the Gielgud Theatre in London. Lend Me A Tenor is the uproarious new musical comedy which is currently running at the Gielgud Theatre. The hilarious show features mistaken identities and unexpected romance and is based on the award-winning West End and Broadway hit comedy by Ken Ludwig. The multi-talented cast stars award-winning actors Matthew Kelly and Joanna Riding alongside Damian Humbley, Michael Matus, Sophie-Louise Dann, Cassidy Janson, Gay Soper, Jane Quinn and Michelle Bishop. It’s 1934, and the world’s greatest tenor Tito Merelli has come to Cleveland, Ohio, to save its Grand Opera Company by singing Verdi’s Otello. When he is unexpectedly incapacitated, Max, the opera director’s meek assistant, is given the daunting task of finding a last-minute replacement. Chaos ensues – including a scheming soprano, a tenor-struck ingénue, a jealous wife, shrimp gone bad and the Cleveland Police department. The company also features Jemma Alexander, Karen Aspinall, Natasha J. Barnes, Nick Butcher, Kelly Chinery, Sharon Eckman, Daniel Farrow, Andrew Keelan, Kara Lane, Connor McAllister, Haydn Oakley, Stephen Oliver-Webb, Ryan Pidgen, Jeremy Secomb, Emma Sewell, John Stacey, Robert Traynor, and Michelle White. This brand-new production is directed by Olivier award-winning director Ian Talbot (High Society, Anything Goes) and choreographed by Tony-nominated choreographer Randy Skinner (42nd Street, White Christmas).
